      The PBY-5 and all earlier versions were true flying boats without the means to land on any medium except water. Sailors could wrestle the big Catalina ashore and park it using wheeled beaching gear but the process was slow and difficult. Trying to repair or maintain the airplane in the water could also be very challenging.   XR, Thank you Sir,mystery solved it was RN,confirmed by Chas Bowyer's Sunderland gh I am sure it was "P" as the previous month,I was flying "M" all month and that was ML Every time aircraft came up the slip for Minor/Major,they were swapped between 88// and the hull letter changed.

A flying boat is a fixed-winged seaplane with a hull, allowing it to land on water, that usually has no type of landing gear to allow operation on land. It differs from a floatplane as it uses a purpose-designed fuselage which can float, granting the aircraft boats may be stabilized by under-wing floats or by wing-like projections (called sponsons) from the fuselage.

At the age of 23 he founded Supermarine Aviation in Southampton inand made his fortune designing and building flying boats in the First World War. The following is a list of seaplanes and amphibious aircraft, which includes floatplanes and flying boats, by country of origin.

Seaplanes are any aircraft that has the capability of landing on water while amphibious aircraft are equipped with wheels to alight on land, as well as being able to land on the water.

Duringwhile being re-equipped with Consolidated PBY-5 Catalina flying boats (aircraft A arrived on 19 March), the squadron flew from Port Moresby to bomb Japanese shipping at Rabaul in New Britain – by then the most powerful enemy base in the SWPA; to Tulagi in the Solomon Islands and Port Vila in the New Hebrides.
